'Reflection'

Schanenweiher, Kandel, Germany, 2009.

Kandel is a small town on the French-German border, close to the river Rhein and surrounded by the Bienwald Forest. The ancient forest is a constant and important feature in the everyday lives and folklore of the local people. In June 2009 I was invited to attend an international symposium to celebrate the use of wood from the forest. The sculpture I created was made from seasoned oak, constructed with the collaboration of a local craftsman. It is a semi-circle of repeating triangular forms. Placed at the edge of a lake, reflections complete the circle creating a link between land and water.
